|Title:||Sintering properties and microstructure of NiMn<inf>2</inf>O<inf>4</inf>-silver composites|
Physics and Astronomy
|Abstract:||Sintering properties, phase and microstructure of nickel mangante-silver composites were studied. Nickel manganite (NiMn2O4) powder, synthesized by solid state coordination, was mixed with silver particles by ball milling for 21 h. NiMn2O4-xAg (when x = 0, 3, 6, 9, 12 and 15 wt%) ceramic composites with pellet diameter of 1 cm were fabricated by uniaxial pressing (1 ton) and subsequent cold isostatic pressing (170 MPa) and then sintered at 1200°C for 3 h. NiMn2O4ceramics have 97% relatively density. It was found that some Ag particles may evaporate from the surface of NiMn2O4-xAg composites. Decreasing of shrinkage as Ag content increases may be due to porosity occurred by Ag evaporation at high temperature and coalescence of Ag agglomerated particles. No chemical reaction between NiMn2O4and Ag particle was observed by X-ray diffraction. Dispersion of Ag particles in NiMn2O4matrix was revealed. It is found that Ag particles agglomerate into larger size particles when the amount of Ag increases. Resistivity at room temperature of NiMn2O4is dramatically decreases by 3 wt%Ag addition. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.|
